    This game is not bad at all, there is a few great things happening, like i said i do have hope. But then again i picked the Bulls last night to win by 18

  • 168

    very scrappy game. Victory for the Boks. Which is good. Nothing more to be said really.

  • 169

    Great stuff surely the game is safe now. Eyes tired enjoy rest of the game all.

  • 170

    My take on this game is, there are better and harder tackles in this game than the normal NZ vs Aus game, i wont say much about this mornings game, because i could not watch much because of work. But i will and see if it was not again one off those loose run from everywhere games where tackling was low on priority

  • 174

    Not a perfect game by the Springboks, by any means… but 18 points win and the bonus point, away from home, against a team which plays a spoiling type of game.

    I am satisfied… with the proviso that there are things which must improve…

    Night Mr Suitcase, have a great one!

    I agree GBS, there was about 2 tries thrown away with poor finishing, some real poor concentration at times but we are scoring tries, so unlike AC

    Who is going to watch the Mayweather / McGregor fight?

    Hope Mayweather moers McGregor silly, the arrogant arsehole!

  • 178

    When is the fight really.
    I hear they might only start at about 5 o clock

  • 179

    176 @ superBul:
    The All Blacks were also not perfect today… and neither was the Wallabies… also chances thrown away, silly errors…

    But more than that, we must remember who we played… and where we played…

    Argentina in Argentinia are a difficult bunch, but their spoiling game plan also makes for not always the best, fluent and sublime rugby moments…

    The fact was the Bokke won well, going away from the Pumas… enough tries..

    178 @ superBul:
    Yeah, about that time… the undercard matches start at 01:00 I think… but the main bout is at about 05:00, as I understand it!

    Let’s look at the Bokke performance today:

    Scrums went well, even dominant at times… a good tick there!
    Lineouts was a mixed bag…
    Backline attack was not so good, and I think it started with Hougie who took too many steps before passing and a general lack of accuracy in attack…
    Defence… overall it was good, with a couple of lapses in concentration…

    Beast: He is a bit over the hill, not so good
    Malcolm Marx: Always solid but I expected a little bit more from him… some good steals over the ball
    Coenie die Boef: Had a good scrumming game, couple of good runs, he was better last week though
    Franco Mostert: Was tireless but a bit quiet and did not “Shine”… but was OK
    Eben Etzebeth: Was busy and industrious, carried the ball well
    Siya Kolisi: Was nice and busy, good game by him
    Jaco Kriel: Was a bit quiet, but not a bad game
    Uzair Cassiem: Was a bit absent, I think
    Francois Hougaard: Not a good game, threw and intercept pass too… some wrong options… not his best day at the office
    Elton Jantjies: Not too bad, kicked well to posts after 2 early misses and generally distributed well
    Jan Serfontein: Not such a good game from him, I feel
    Jesse Kriel: Mixed bag, not bad… but not great today
    Courtnall Skosan: Also a bit of a mixed bag, not bad but also not on fire
    Raymond Rhule: Far too quiet, not a good day for him
    Andries Coetzee: Works hard, solid enough but also made a few crucial mistakes, could also have been better

    Good night, sleep tight!

    @ grootblousmile:
    Beast: He is a bit over the hill, not so good agree, he can be replaced and not be missed
    Malcolm Marx: Always some good steals over the ball best we have
    Coenie die Boef: Had a good scrumming game, couple of good runs, never thought we would like him, he has become a good prop holding his own
    Franco Mostert: Was tireless but a bit quiet and did not “Shine”… He looked sheepish in that try from the kick off. He should have gone for that ball, but otherwise OK
    Eben Etzebeth: Was busy and industrious, carried the ball well, i liked his bollocking runs, becoming a good lock, must just check his anger
    Siya Kolisi: Was nice and busy, good game by him agree, he must do this against the other 2 teams too
    Jaco Kriel: Was a bit quiet, but not a bad game, liked the way he played his tighter part, not such a lose game, against ABs and Aus the game will not be that tight and he might be devastating
    Uzair Cassiem: Was a bit absent, I think, was he there. Warren will walk back in if he is fit again

    Francois Hougaard: Not a good game, threw and intercept pass too… some wrong options… not his best day at the office. Too slow in distribution with this game plan
    Elton Jantjies: for me he was good, not brilliant, kicked well to posts after 2 early misses and generally distributed well, i liked his try. As far as i can remember Barret is not a great defender and this might just be another chance for Elton
    Jan Serfontein: Not such a good game from him, I feel but getting better and combines well
    Jesse Kriel: Mixed bag, not bad… made a few poor decisions, but the combo is one of our better ones for a long time
    Courtnall Skosan: Also a bit of a mixed bag, not bad but also not on fire
    Raymond Rhule: got almost no ball, not a great day for him
    Andries Coetzee: solid enough but also made a few crucial mistakes, could become one of our best 15s for a very long time
